. and sadly, that includes senator scott brown of massachusetts. senator brown came to us already something of a political legend, and in just a few short years he leaves behind an outsized legacy. we all remember how scott rose to national prominence in the election literally heard round the world. after the death of senator kennedy, there was an open seat in massachusetts, and a special election to fill it. and few people even entertained the thought of a republican winning. and for good reason. few states are as synonymous with political liberalism, democrats outnumber republicans in the state 3-1, and the entire congressional delegation is composed of democrats. but supported by his wife gale and their daughters along with some key early allies including our own senator mccain, scott appealed to the state's independents, ran a flawless campaign, and won. as he put it on election night, he beat the odds and the experts. and the people became the machine. i think that 2006 g.m.c. canyon that scott drove around in the election actually should go to the smithsonian. we all remember that nig
